Club Maintenance Scheme

Somerset Football Association is pleased to announce that we be delivering a club maintenance fund.


This is your opportunity to give your club some much needed care and attention.

Somerset FA are inviting clubs from all around the County to submit an application form which could give them the opportunity to apply for materials  or equipment which could help improve their facilities. Clubs can access up to £350 through this fund.


Funding can be potentially provided for items such as:

  • Paint for re-decoration of clubhouse
  • Replacement goal nets
  • Line marking machine
  • Improved dug outs
  • Tea hut refurbishment 
  • Pitch Maintenance
  • Kitchen refurbishment


* In some cases applicants may be signposted to other funding streams available, if they are eligible, as we have limited applications that we can support.
